Five Giant Reefs Deployed off Panama City Beach
6/21/2016
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., June 20, 2016 – Using a grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Bay County was able to deploy five new super reefs off the coast of Panama City Beach on May 14, 2016. Standing 18 feet tall, weighing 18 tons and placed about 74 feet below the surface, these super reefs will come to life with living marine organisms, creating an ecosystem and habitat for fish, crabs, lobsters and more, and adding another artificial reef for divers and fisherman to enjoy.

"The history of diving in Panama City Beach goes deep – all U.S. military divers learn to dive here, and we're home to numerous artificial reefs. We're actually known as the Wreck Diving Capital of the South," shares Visit Panama City Beach President and CEO Dan Rowe. "These new super reefs will be another great feature for both fishermen and divers to take advantage of."

The five super reefs were deployed by Walter Marine three miles south of the Russell-Fields Pier, and about 9.8 miles from the St. Andrews Bay pass. The total cost of the project covered by the FWC grant was $60,000. The approximate GPS coordinates of the super reefs are as follows:

30 10.196 Latitude 85 54.607 Longitude
30 10.179 Latitude 85 54.567 Longitude
30 10.176 Latitude 85 54.603 Longitude
30 10.153 Latitude 85 54.594 Longitude
30 10.138 Latitude 85 54.602 Longitude

Gag grouper recreational harvest closes soon in most Gulf waters
Gag grouper will close for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters Dec. 4, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 3. All Gulf federal waters will close Dec. 3, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 2.

State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties were open from April 1 through June 30 and were not open during the July 1 through Dec. 3 season. Monroe County is also excluded from the July 1 through Dec. 3 season because it follows Atlantic rules for gag grouper.

The FWC manages marine fish from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico.

To learn more, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on "Saltwater," "Recreational Regulations" and "Gulf Grouper."
